Subject: Before September 11th..
This film is split in two, the first part is consumed by a fire that ate up a warehouse in New York. It's a stubborn one it looks like, after they fight it from across the street, they then proceed gingerly to go in. Pretty good footage here.

The main part of this film is coverage of a B-29 bomber that crashed into the Empire State building on July 28th, 1945, which killed 14 people. Hadn't heard of it? I heard SOME talk about this story, but never actually seen any footage of it until now. This is pretty amazing footage here of the destruction, both in the building and on the ground. The whole floor looks wasted. Curiously, there is footage of what appears to be a dead clothed man, lying in an empty room of the tower. I guess they just pulled him out and left him there for authorities to pick him up? It's a very chilling and somewhat unworldly scene. If you're interested in September 11th footage, maybe you'd be interested in an historical piece of history that happened before. A MUST SEE on this site!
